Folkscanomy: Books on Film and Cinema

Folksonomy: A system of classification derived from the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content; this practice is also known as collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing, and social tagging. Coined by Thomas Vander Wal, it is a portmanteau of folk and taxonomy.

Folkscanomy: A collection of books and text derived from the efforts of volunteers to make information as widely available as possible. Because the metadata related to these scanned books are often done outside the library or cataloging industries, finding material can be more difficult. The Folkscanomy collection attempts to add a layer of classification for easier navigation.

This collection is Folkscanomy Cinema.

Of the many varied categories of anime, or Japanese animation, none is as endlessly fascinating and controversial as its approach to sex and the erotic. From the arthouse refinement of The Sensualist to the violent extremes of the Legend of the Overfiend series, it's an unpredictable and highly charged area that has never been fully explored. Until now. Researched by Helen McCarthy, author of the award-winning The Anime Movie Guide, and respected anime and manga translator Jonathan Clements,...

Forget Les Cahiers de Cinema . Forget the auteur theory. Forget subtleties of lighting or narrative technique or the great moments of screen acting. This book tells you what you need to know before you shell out good money for a cinema seat or settle down in front of your video. How much bum and tit are you going to see? And whose? Covering (or rather uncovering) a wide range of films from the obvious (like Beyond the Valley of the Dolls ) to the more subtle (like Zardoz ) and the real...

The Soundtrack - Volume 1 Issue 1
Topics: sound, film, music, soundtrack, coen, dialogue, musical, audio, arizona, films, sound effects,...
From the 1920s through to the 1970s, America's most fearless entrepreneurs created thousands of "adults only" features - exploitation films that promised "sinsational!" treatments of the day's hottest topics. These films played in red-light district cinemas or "grindhouses" for almost half a century, until hardcore pornography and the advent of video rang the death knell for this form of "art". This book traces the uncensored history of these films, from...
Topics: Movies, Film, Cinema, Exploitation, Sexploitation, Sex, Sleaze
Style, sex and savagery are the main ingredients of Italian giallo cinema, a highly salacious art form which thrives on fetishist images of beautiful, scantily-clad females being menaced by knife-wielding maniacs - often for the most obscure of motives! Now this lavish book from the publishers of the best-selling Video Nasties! brings you the definitive guide to this much-maligned and rarely chronicled movie genre. Entertainingly and informatively written by Adrian Luther-Smith, Blood And Black...

The science fiction genre has offered fertile ground for film-makers since the late nineteenth century, giving us everything from forgettable nonsense like Astro-Zombies and I Married a Monster from Outer Space to some of the greatest films ever made: 2001: A Space Odyssey, Fritz Lang's Metropolis, the classic horror/SF movies of the thirties, and more.
